Keanu Reeves and Charlize Theron in Sweet November: Saturday's Favorite Movie Moment



The song is Enya's-Only time

This Saturday's favorite movie moment is actually a bunch of movie moments from Sweet November accompanied by the song Only Time from Enya. Sweet November, stars Charlize Theron and Keanu Reeves in addition to an array of some great looking dogs.

An excellent film, Sweet November reminds us to stop and remember what a true gift life is...Keanu Reeves character discovers through the lead character (Theron) the true meaning of friendship and our God given potential to give compassion and love to each other, animals, and even wayward strangers...

There are no words or seconds to waste while we're here on earth, and yet we waste a lot of them, hence this movie reminds us to make all of our moments count...

Soak up every laugh, smile, glance...from the ones you love and others, and give every part of yourself to everything possible. Because what you give to the world and others will remain a part life itself, like the soil that nurtures the trees and the soul that planted the seed.

Live for and in every dance, hug, song, and person...with the imaginable mind and open heart of a child.

I will run on my beach until I reach the end of the shoreline; and then I will wait and see what God will ask of me next...

That's my plan, except I believe I'll take a Golden Retriever with me, and Simon of course.

However, until that time, I refuse to take myself seriously...and that is the one thing I loved about this movie and the main character, if you haven't seen it, rent it-

This movie reviewer believes this movie is equivalent to the following: Three scoops(thats the most scoops suggested, so that's a lot) of peanut butter swirl, a dance on the beach, a huge summer hat, and a copy of Confederacy Of Dunces. by, John Kennedy Toole/with a foreword by Walker Percy. I think that's the most I've given a movie so far...hmmm

Make a splash out of your day~

Great choice Ann. I really loved what you had to say about it too. That is how I try to live my life. I do get bogged down and forget all that though, thanks for reminding me. And I'll keep on loving people, even though they don't always love back!

:-)

I see your nosey nest neighbor is asking us what song we have on our minds today. He is cute! I have been listening to David Cook (AI winner -- love him!), and also I'm really loving the new Madonna song "4 minutes" which is good inspiration for exercising. :-) Have a great weekend friend!

Motherhood- Courage


Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons

Words-

Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination


Written for Ann

Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”'


F. Scott Fitzgerald. (Lines from The Great Gatsby)
"A Southerner Talks Music"

Mark Twain

"A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."

Franz Kafka

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.
